Embark on the path to personal growth & church fraternity

Most men don’t recognize their importance in the home, the church, and society. Because they underestimate the impact they can have, they often settle for counterfeit models of manhood. Two popular counterfeit models in our culture are the Macho-man and the Apathetic-man. The Macho-man (think toxic masculinity) thinks masculinity is about power and success; the Apathetic-man thinks the “I-don’t-really-care” attitude is the ideal. Both of these are perversions of authentic manhood.

The answer isn’t to try to be more macho or to care less, the answer is to be more like Jesus, who modeled perfect manhood. He was the perfect blend of strength, maturity, compassion, wisdom, will and submission. He thought clearly and loved deeply. He took initiative and sacrificially took responsibility for those God entrusted to his care. This is the kind of men we strive to be at OCF.

In order to help one another become this kind of man, the Men’s Ministry at OCF offers large group get-togethers (for making initial connections), small groups (for instruction, discussion and growth), and one-on-one discipleship (for accountability and encouragement).

Opportunities to Connect & Grow

Men’s Fraternity
OCF | Thursdays, September 30 – November 11, 2021 | 6:00am

Guys (high school and up) are invited to join Pastor Brandon for our early morning Men’s Fraternity series on Thursdays from 6am-7am at OCF. We’ll spend 7-weeks discussing how to become “Wise Guys” by reorienting our lives around God – the foundation of truth and eternal source of wisdom.  This study will challenge us to increase our intake of enduring, trustworthy sources of information, while moderating our consumption of less reliable sources.

El Segundo | Tuesdays, October 5 – November 16, 2021 | 7:00pm

For those guys who aren’t early morning people, guys (high school and up) are invited to join Ron Dunaetz at his home in El Segundo for an evening Men’s Fraternity series on Tuesday nights  from 7pm-8pm. We’ll spend 7-weeks discussing how to become “Wise Guys” by reorienting our lives around God – the foundation of truth and eternal source of wisdom.  This study will challenge us to increase our intake of enduring, trustworthy sources of information, while moderating our consumption of less reliable sources.
